The winter snow lies upon the ground and the livestock are nestled deep in the barns hiding from the cold north winds.
Cautious preparations are beginning for the Return of the Sun! We are tentatively planning on this event, held at its traditional time.
At the time of writing, we are considering what changes may need to happen for this event to be held safely for all our participants. These will likely include limits on site attendance (which will mean required registration), limits on communal food preparation, alterations to traditional activities and masking/distancing issues.
Please be patient as we work through these issues and watch here and on social media for information as it becomes available.
This year and this event are especially important for us. Please see our announcement on this site on the Passing of a Jarl.
Registration - Coming Soon
Everyone is required to register to help us plan for amenities. This includes merchants and traders.
While we pride ourselves on hospitality, we cannot guarantee feast, camping space, or other services for those who do not register.
NOTE: This event requires all NEW attendees to send a photo of them in kit as part of the registration. YOU WILL NEED A GOOGLE ACCOUNT TO UPLOAD PHOTOS.
We will be doing our celebration and feast on Saturday evening! Dress in your finest fabrics with your fanciest bling! Period feast gear is required to participate (esp. drink containers)
Come prepared with a couple of things that you might want to say at feast. Too short and you'll have to go again, too long and the archers get you...
. Due to the primitive nature of the site, we cannot accommodate food allergies or special preparations. If you need special food, please bring it.
We have multiple battles planned for this event for both Eastern and Western styles.
Please review the authenticity and combat guidelines before participating.
Melees, one on one, and woods/running battles are all part of the mix.
Stay tuned for more details!
Ravensborg has a long history of fun shoots both on the archery field and for qualified fighters, on the combat field.
Past shoots include a wands, roving, and clouts.
We will also have an axe, spear and knife targets. Bring your toys!
There are no costs to attend this event, but donations are welcome to help cover expenses.
We hold an auction before feast that is the main source of funds used for site maintenance and improvement. Everyone is asked to consider bringing a quality reenactment item for addition to the auction. This allows us to keep these events free. Please be generous with donations and bids.
